HC Deb 08 October 1924 vol 177 c568W

asked the Minister of Agriculture whether labourers' wages have been fixed in any counties at a rate below 30s. per week; and if so, what rates have been fixed and in which counties?


No minimum rates of wages have yet been fixed under the provisions of the Agricultural Wages (Regulation) Act. County committees are now being set up, and I hope that rates will be fixed in a very short time.
